A reviewer addressed the delay after Samson early in the second set:

yes, the dew is great at over 13 minutes. fantastic jamming in the second set. I was at this show. After the Sampson, the band was having technical difficulties. After trying to work out the kinks for what seemed like forever, jerry put down the guitar and walked off the stage. I remember my friend and I looking at each other saying, "Jerry has walked off the stage!!!" During the tech problem, Vince continued to play softly on the keyboards. At one point, the entire arena could hear a very loud pop from the speakers. Vince had an earpiece in his ear and he literally jumped out of his seat when that pop went off. When the band returned they got the crowd moving with a very nice Iko and then of course the more than ten minutes each of playin and uncle john's band.
overall a fun show
